If Your Birthday is May 31
(The Day of the Cutting Edge) | Gemini Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
If you were to find yourself face-to-face with the Meaning of Life, what would you do? Or, to put it another way, how do you respond — in tangible, active ways — to the idea of ‘purpose’ in your life? One way to look at this hypothetical situation is that it describes any relationship you find yourself in. Once you see the purpose of the relationship, you’ll know what you need to do within it to serve the higher good of all concerned.
Written in the Planets
You can dig deep today. In fact, you’ll probably enjoy doing so — whether that means sleuthing a mystery, engaging in deep study, or diving into some therapeutic process or introspection. Mercury in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn could make this opportunity quite tangible, perhaps having to do with your body. Whatever it is you investigate, you’ll want understand its roots; better yet, you’ll want to feel them. Meanwhile Mars in Gemini opposite the Great Attractor in Sagittarius could make it seem like ‘the truth’ or ‘real meaning’ is outside of yourself. Don’t be fooled — that’s just a mirror. Remember what they say: as within, so without.
